Top 5 Slide Presentations From SXSW 2010
April 4, 2010 by Gwendolyn Regina T
Many of us probably did not have the opportunity to fly to Austin, Texas in the USA a couple of weeks ago for South by Southwest (SXSW). For those who are unfamiliar, there are 3 differently themed conferences at SXSW: Music, Film and Interactive. For entrepreneurs and innovators alike, the Interactive one is the most interesting.
In their words,
“The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals offer the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery.”
And thanks to SlideShare, who has again neatly compiled many of the presentations at the festival, we pick out 5 that we love.
